Top plates go fast, for like a hot minute

Then they come to a screeching halt. I get so focused on cutting the arches and hollowing I forget I still have to do the F holes and then bass bars. I’m thinking “it’s so much easier than maple” and then it I’m thinking “yeah, f holes and bass bars.” It’s all good and all necessary. For me, the top balances out with the back.
